Register as New Patient
This Practice welcomes new patients who live within our practice area. Anyone in England can register with a GP surgery. It is free to register.
It is not a legal requirement to provide proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number but it might help if you have one or more of the following:
- birth certificate
- HC2 certificate
- Proof of address
- rough sleepers' identity badge
- hostel or accommodation registration or mail forwarding letter
If you're homeless, you can give a temporary address, such as a friend's address, a day centre or the GP surgery address. If you decide to register for online services we would need to check your details to confirm your identity before giving access to confidential patient information. A member of the reception team can provide further information if required.
You can download a GMS1 registration form on GOV.UK. The GP practice will also ask you to complete a new patient registration form to collect important health information about you. You will also be asked to complete a new patient questionnaire.

Disabled Patient Facilities
Both surgeries on 167a Borough Road, Middlesbrough and 27 Stokesley Road, Nunthorpe have full disabled access, there are also dedicated disabled parking spaces close to the entrance to surgery. The consulting rooms are all on the ground floor with easy access throughout. Disabled toilets are available.
Temporary Patient Registrations
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
